US News and World Report on the Interior

“The interior looks great, feels upscale, and features two rows of spacious seats. This Kia also has above-average trunk space.” – US News and World Report

2019 Kia Optima reviews frequently draw attention to the spacious and well-fitted trunk thanks to the following first-class comfort features:

  • Heated Front and Rear Outboard Seats
  • Perforated Leather Upholstery
  • Dual-Zone Full Automatic Temperature Control
  • 12-Way Power-Adjustable Driver’s Seat with 4-Way Power Lumbar Support

The 15.9-cubic-foot trunk provides space for everything you’ll need along for the ride.

Kelley Blue Book on Technology

“Last year, the Optima was made more enticing with a standard 7-inch touch screen offering Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This year it gets even better.” – Kelley Blue Book

Kelley Blue Book praised the new Optima’s onboard features, which include a standard suite of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) for the 2019 model. That means you’ll enjoy the following cutting-edge safety systems across all trims:

  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
  • Lane Keeping Assist-Line (LKA-L)
  • Driver Attention Warning (DAW)
  • Blind Spot Collision Warning (BCW)
  • Rear Cross Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW)
  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
